Cade Enns of the Knights managed to grab a goal in the first five minutes of the second period but the Wranglers answered with four goals from Cody Barnes, Darian Long (2) and Chase Vancoughnett-Lafleur.

Kevin-Thomas Walters and Cameron McKenzie managed to bring the score a little closer by the mid-third period for the North Okanagan Knights, but with only 25 seconds left in play, Darian Long managed to get the Wrangler’s seventh goal and his third.

It’s the second time this month Long has managed to get a hattrick this month.
